The Etschtal wine-growing area stretches from Siebeneich, just before Terlan, to Nals and is, in terms of area, the smallest sub-zone of the South Tyrol wine region. However, there is a lot to offer on these barely ten kilometres. Both in terms of quality - some of the longest-lived white wines in the world come from here - and in terms of the variety of wines.

The Andrian and Terlan Wineries

Terlan Winery
Die Kellereien Andrian und Terlan

The late 19th century was a terrible time for South Tyrolean winegrowers. The grape prices paid by the local wine merchants were low and the farmers had no other buyers. They were paid so little that they had to starve.

The Andrian village priest did not want to stand by and watch this any longer and organised the founding of the first cellar cooperative in South Tyrol in the early 90s of the century before last. With the support of far-sighted politicians who promoted the project with subsidies, the foundation was completed in 1893.
